Hi Team Titleist,
A while back we asked you to send in your golf ball fitting questions and we're back with some answers! We'll continue to post the Q&A here in the boards and answer as many questions as possible. So feel free to join the conversation below and keep the questions coming!
First up, we have a question from Ski & Tee Dave from Philadelphia, PA.
Q: Would you give more weight to fitting results on the course or on a hitting bay analyzer? Also, should a ball be picked based on your well-struck shots, poorly-struck shots, or the shots you hit most often?
A: With regards to whether you should be fit for a golf ball indoors or using a launch or out on the golf course, the answer is simple; fitting should always be done on the golf course. That's where you play. That's where you're hitting all the different shots that you need during a round. It's important when you're trying to select the best golf ball for your game to do it out on the golf course.
As for the types of shots you should be looking at when you're evaluating and comparing golf balls, you really want to look at your well-struck shots. It's on your well-struck shots that you're really going to be able to see the differences in performance between the models. Take the time to analyze how that golf ball is reacting in terms of its flight, where it lands on the green and the spin control you have with it. Really look at those well-struck shots because you want a ball that will give you the best results when you perform your best.
